Check if your curtains contain natural fibers like cotton, linen, silk, hemp and rayon. Select the dye color carefully. Colored curtains tends to blend its existing color with the new dye rather than covering it. To know the result, first experiment it with a small piece of fabric from an inside seam of the curtain. Mix the salt and dye to a water-filled washing machine and blend it thoroughly with soda ash. Add the curtains to the machine and agitate. After the initial wash, run another wash cycle in hot water with a small amount of dish detergent. Rinse in cold water. Repeat the rinsing process until water is clear, and then remove from the washer. Hang the curtains to dry.
You can dye your curtains by picking up a bottle of dye from your local fabric store. Pick up a bottle that requires you to mix it with water and soak the fabric in the solution. Take your curtains, make sure they are clean to help the dye to stick better, and gently lay them in the dye, soaking them for the amount of time that the bottle specifies. Once finished, place the large bucket of dye and curtains in the bath tub, and take the curtains out, wringing them out gently. Follow the directions on the bottle and either wash the curtains out and put them in the dryer, or put them in the washer and then the dryer.
